Waukesha police released information Monday on a Sunday standoff in which a man barricaded himself inside his basement with a handgun for more than an hour.

Police were called to the 2100 block of Kilps Drive for a domestic violence report at 1:27 p.m. A 29-year-old mother of four at the residence told police her 30-year-old husband was in the basement with a gun. Officers evacuated the woman and her children. All available Waukesha officers, Waukesha County sheriff's deputies and the regional BearCat armored vehicle came to the house.

The man surrendered at 2:42 p.m. The case is still under investigation, and the changes have not yet been referred to the Waukesha County district attorney.
